Sleep Tests to Detect Sleep Apnea

At our office we have a Home Sleep Test available for our patients to take home.  They do not have to go to a sleep lab.  This allows the patient to be tested in the comfort of their own bed and it much more comfortable to the patient. The patient returns the sleep test to us the next morning and we send it to a Sleep Physician who reads the results and diagnoses the patient’s condition as mild, moderate or severe sleep apnea.  We then call the patient back to the office and discuss the results and all of their options. 

In most cases we can help the patient by making them a mouthpiece that helps to open their airway at night and the patient doesn’t have to wear a CPAP machine. If the results come back that the patient has severe Sleep Apnea we will refer that patient to a Sleep Physician for further evaluation.  In some cases the physician will suggest that the patient wear a CPAP machine first.  If the patient isn’t comfortable wearing it then we can make them an Oral Appliance for Sleep Apnea.

The other type of sleep test is done in a sleep lab and the patient is hooked up to many wires that measure the patient’s brain wave during sleep as well as the oxygen heart rate etc.

Tests and Equipment Used in Sleep Studies:

•           EEG (electroencephalogram) to measure and record brain wave activity.
•           EMG (electromyogram) to record muscle activity such as face twitches, teeth grinding, and leg movements, and to determine the presence of REM stage sleep. During REM sleep, intense dreams often occur as the brain undergoes heightened activity.
•           EOG (electro-oculogram) to record eye movements. These movements are important in determining the different sleep stages, particularly REM stage sleep.
•           ECG (electrocardiogram) to record heart rate and rhythm.
•           Nasal airflow sensor to record airflow.
•           Snore microphone to record snoring activity.

With the sleep study we have at our office, you can take it home and conduct the test in the privacy of your own home.  With a small type of band to wear around your head like a visor, along with 2 small tubes that you wear near your nose, you will be able to have a less invasive type of sleep study but have the same type of results that you would have from a sleep study overnight clinic.
